How to convert a 24 bit, two’s complement value into a signed integer?

조회 수: 103(최근 30일)
I want to read an AD converter using the Raspberry Pi SPI interface controlled by Matlab. The AD converter outputs 24 bit data in the two's complement format, MSD first. The Matlab writeRead command returns the data as a row vector of data type char
How can I quickly translate the data into an integer of data type int32 ?

s = 2's complement 24-bit string to convert
b = [s([1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1]) s]; % sign extension
k = typecast(uint32(bin2dec(b)),'int32'); % equivalent decimal number

This is is obviously a 24-bit binary string. Hence the extension by 8 bits to 32 bits.

There is an example MATLAB class in Raspberry Pi support package that does something similar for MCP300x ADC's. Here is the readVoltage() method for this class:
function voltage = readVoltage(obj, adcChannel)
validateattributes(adcChannel, {'numeric'}, ...
{'scalar', '>=', 0, '<=', obj.NumAdcChannels-1}, '', 'adcChannel');
adc = obj.getAdcChannelSelect(adcChannel);
data = uint16(obj.spiObj.writeRead([1, adc, 0]));
highbits = bitand(data(2), obj.Lsb2);
voltage = double(bitor(bitshift(highbits, 8), data(3)));
voltage = (obj.VoltageReference/1024) * voltage;
where obj.Lsb2 is defined as bin2dec('00000011'). The value read from ADC is 10-bits stashed into two 8-bit values. The upper two-bits is in byte 2 and the 8 least significant bits are in byte 3.
You can take a look at the entire class definition here:
